    Having trouble installing Snow Leopard
    So I'm finally upgrading to SL but I seem to be having an issue. I put the cd in, click install, agree to the terms and all that. It reboots and begins the installation. After about 15-20 minutes [Says approx. 50 minutes remaining] it then reboots itself. It reboots to my normal desktop, with nothing changed and nothing else happening. Version is still the same, nothing has occurred.

    There is a folder MAC OSX Install with about 3.5 gigs, but the install never continues. I've tried three times with no success, every time it starts anew.

    Bad installation disk? Am I stupid? Please help.

    What are the specs of your machine? And where did you get the SL disk from? Is it gray or black?

    I'm not on my Mac at the moment, but it's a 2.66 Duo Core, 2 gigs of ram, I definitely meet all the required specs. I bought it in 2008.

    The disk is off white? With the actual snow leopard on it.

    This is not a retail copy of Snow Leopard. Throw it away, go out and buy a retail copy of Snow Leopard.
